For the second time this week, the Democratic Party is suing the mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, for defamation.
In the capacity of the leader of the electoral campaign of the Socialist Party, he was again reported to the Court of Tirana for repeated slanders against the Chairman of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha, in order to damage the image and benefit in the next elections.
Veliaj is sued for the statements that:
“I have evidence that Lulzim Basha took a 130 thousand euro car from one of the contractors to leave the protest in Astiri”.
– “DP is a gang that imposes fines and that falls on businessmen to get a villa or a car.”
These are part of the denigrating campaign to damage the image of the opposition leader, it is stated in the lawsuit.
“These untruths were made in order to damage the reputation and damage the image intentionally, given that Lulzim Basha is the Chairman of the opposition PD and Erion Veliaj, as the leader of the SP election campaign for the Tirana region, these defamatory statements uses them to gain political credo in front of the citizens, both for themselves and for the Socialist Party ”– it is said in the new report, filed for defamation by the opposition against the Mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj.
